VCU-UNITE: Identifying Recognition Mechanisms for University-Community Engagement

The purpose of this project was to determine what process would be appropriate to recognize significant contributions of university and community partners to joint community engagement projects. This project sought to determine the awareness and extent of involvement of VCU faculty, staff and students in community engagement projects, and to find out what format of recognition process would be appealing to both university and community participants.

VCU Gives Back

This project proposed the establishment of an organization wide series of community service events beginning at homecoming and culminating in April during National Volunteer Week with a large scale event, in an effort to bring a sense of unity among the students, faculty and staff within the organization while helping the communities surrounded by VCU.
